Welcome to Helix California
Like all of our comprehensive bar review courses, Helix California is built on the latest learning science to promote understanding and support long-term retention. From the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) to the Essays and through the Performance Test, Helix incorporates proven learning techniques such as spaced repetition and interleaving to reinforce recall, while its integrated content approach keeps you alert and involved. And that means you have every leading-edge advantage for passing the California Bar Examination.
You’ll see and hear key concepts taught in a variety of formats and voices. For example, you might read through a checklist of rule components, then watch a 5-minute video with visual illustrations and examples to help you better understand or recall the rule, and then move into the next part of the rule with a quick written explanation pulling out core bar inquiries. This high impact teaching strategy is what makes Helix like no other bar preparation course available.
With benchmark coursework like practice exams, a simulated exam, and graded essays and performance tests to help you engage in the tasks you’ll need to perform on exam day — and a strategically crafted study plan to take you through all the content in the course — Helix provides what you need, when and how you need it. And Helix eliminates the guesswork by providing your choice of four study plans to follow from as early as 20 weeks before the exam.
